Students with children

Studying with a child is a special challenge that requires organizational talent and flexibility. On the other hand, according to many studying parents, studying is also a particularly good time to decide to have a child, because you have more time for your offspring than in your later professional life.

You can get comprehensive information about family-conscious measures in the brochure "Studying with a child at Nordhausen University of Applied Sciences (PDF)".

You can also find a helpful collection of information and experiences on the homepage

If you have any questions or problems regarding the topic "Pregnant while studying" or "Studying with a child", our Equal Opportunities and Family Officer will be happy to help you.
